    Hello everyone

    I was able to install luma on my 8gb card and i wanted to switch it to a 32gb but when i turn on my 3ds with it, my 3ds doesn't turn, if in home menu, my 3ds freezes. I tried with another 32gb card same thing, i formatted the two card and insered it but it still doesn't work! When i just copy the files, they become like that: http://hpics.li/a7d8296
    But my initial SD card is fine, it works with my 3ds!

    Copy paste the files over to the new SD Card and run it as normal.
    (Assuming you have installed arm9loaderhax)

    How did you format the 32gb SD cards? Windows internal tools or guiformat? If the first, try to format your card with guiformat and maybe run a filesystem check afterwards

    Also, format should be FAT32

    Might be corrupted.
    Have you tried other SD cards?

    If I'm searching for "UUUUUUUU.uuu files" on google i find a lot of weird stuff, some telling sd fault, some telling it's a virus, but no source I really trust. Do you run a antivirus? If not you might install one and check your system.

    Is it a normal SD card or a micro SD? If it is an micro SD and you are using an adapter, try another adapter if possible, format and copy again.

    Please test your 32gb cards with h2testw (german page). Even if it seems unlikely that 2 cards will fail at the same time, it's a possibility.

    If they had errors you really should get new cards. If the SD already errors, it means it can fail completely at any time.

    The errors came from the fact that not all space were available (eg 31896 out of31897)

    That's not a real error, it's normal. Any other errors? Maybe check the card again, don't delete the files, eject and reinsert the card and do a read only check.

    If you open FBI and look in the Nintendo 3DS folder, are there the UUUUUUUU.uuu files too? if on 3ds anything is looking fine, you might want to try to copy all files with ftpd. Might be slower than pc transfer, but might be the only way to recover your files correctly.
